Happy New Year! I am off to a good start so far, continuing my commitment to paint while getting used to the new job responsibilities. I think of the painting as a way for me to keep a balance of family, work, and self enrichment, and I am really enjoying the process of it all.
This year, I will finally get a drop ceiling with proper lighting in my cubby, which may not improve the technique, but make it a nicer place to hang out! Tis project will also mean a good "cleaning out" of supplies and organizing. I spent yesterday sorting out some older supplies from my "pre Daniel Smith" days. I took these good, student grade materials to my nieces and nephews, and we had a blast painting and drawing. I 'm not sure who enjoyed it more--them or me! They are a very talented group of students, and each one has an eye for something different. I will post some of their work here soon.
Happy Painting :)
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
